What if we disagree?
Differences of opinion between parents about children and breastfeeding are not uncommon. If the disagreement is over beliefs or opinions, it can be helpful to ask other family members about theirs to help you understand your own. But beliefs and opinions are not the same as research-backed recommendations. Professional advice can be helpful in providing objective information. Parents who have a major disagreement should get relevant, accurate information, choose a calm time to talk about it, and focus on their baby’s well-being as they make their decisions together.
